    I am very new at this so I could just be overlooking something
    Go here.... and then go down to common problems and questions


    Does Revolutionary give me root?
    No. You will need to flash this zipfile from recovery.

    you click on the name zipfile, thats where i got it from

    Okay I got that now, but how do I get that onto my phone while my phone is still in the bootloader process.

    again I'm sorry if I'm not making too much sense I'm not up with the superuser terminology yet...

    btw I really appreciate it man

    Basically what I need to know is that if I power off and boot my phone normally right now and run it as a disk drive, will it be messed up in any way?

    This is what I did EXACTLY. Someone else posted this in another thread. The thread announcing that we now have root, I believe.

    For visual learners:

    For the files you will need and step by step instructions.

    Be careful entering the beta key it can be tricky if one is not paying attention.
    Good luck!

    Edit: I have to thank SmokeCrawler because he is the one that originally posted the above info.

    after you boot in recovery is it supposed to freeze at a screen that shows a device with a red triangle with an explimation point in the middle?

    Yes, just make sure you flash superuser to have root access

    Try rebooting and see if you have it. If not then no biggy.

    Here is Clockworkmod:

    Here is Amon_RA: (I prefer this)

    It will download as PC36IMG.zip. Leave it as is and put it on your sd card. Go into your bootloader. Turn off fastboot, power off, hold down volume down + power until the bootloader screen pop ups. Don't touch anything and it will scan for that file. when it ask to update you select yes ( volume up) and let it keep going and select yes again and reboot. You now have a custom recovery.

    So I've done everything now, ran Revolutionary, flashed super user, and I'm almost 100% sure my device is not rooted...
    After a reboot it looked exactly the same and had all of the same files and data...

    when you reboot your phone and you hold down the power and volume button does it say revolutionary at the top and the second line says supersonic evt2-3 s-off? if it does then you are rooted

    i keep putting the superuser file on the sd card and i reboot and then go to bootloader and then it says search failed no image or something which means i dont have the root, and was i supposed to unzip the superuser file then put it on my sd card? because i didnt.

    no you dont unzip it...once you put it on your sd card then you have to boot into recovery and chose to install the file from sd card and find the zip to install it

    Im going to bed, i'll try back at this again after i get off work. I'm still sitting with the same problem, once i run revolutionary it says waiting for device. Im in charge only mode, usb debugging is on. I've tried the drivers listed in the guide, ive tried installing/uninstalling htc synch, ive tried installing pda.net and letting it run through the drivers is uses, and i still cant get past "waiting for device" if anyone has any idea what im doing wrong, please send me a direct message or something. i cant figure this out for the life of me

    turn your phone off

    hold down the power and volume keys, it will come up into hboot and be on fastboot with 3 androids on skateboards at the bottom

    push the volume key down and recovery should be highlighted, press the power button
    (should see htc screen and them revolutionary screen)

    go to install zip from sd card- press power

    choose zip from sdcard-press power

    arrow up twice and you should be on su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed-press power button

    it should run its script and then give you the option to reboot system now-push power button

    that should do it

    Should I apply the clockworkmod to 2.3?
    It says I should do that for ROMs but I seem to remember reading somewhere that was just for 2.2 and I don't wanna do something stupid now after I'm already rooted!

    when i click recovery it goes to "HTC EVO 4G" than it goes to this arrow green facing down with circles around it than it turns into a red triangle with an explemation point in it.?
